South Korea Dog Update | Yogi’s transformation
It took three hours to shave, groom and bathe Yogi. The years of neglect and living in filth were evident in her extremely matted, foul-smelling coat. Throughout the whole process, Yogi seemed to relish the attention, patiently tolerating the clippers, brush and bath. By the end, Yogi felt like a new dog.
A big thank you to volunteers Krystal and Deb for undertaking Yogi’s transformation, and @hsiglobal for rescuing these dogs.
The eight dogs from South Korea in Oregon Humane Society’s care are not currently available for adoption. We want to give them plenty of time to settle in and receive the care they need.

My entry for @rescuestrongco “acts of rescue”
What a difference a week makes! The picture on the left is Sahara the day I pulled her from the shelter- 3/8/19. The picture on the right was Saturday 3/16/19. .
The first picture looks like a dog that had totally given up on life. I can also see how swollen her feet were before because of her mange. She still has a long way to go for her skin issues but don’t you think she looks happy in the picture on the right? Her personality is really coming out and she loves to prance around the backyard and fetch tennis balls. 🎾 .
Can’t wait to see what she looks like when her coat grows back in. 🐕 ♥️
Sahara is around 1 year old, breed- 🤷🏻♀️, and is adoptable through @k9angelsrescuehouston #k9angelsrescuehouston#dogtransformation#spayandneuter#rescuestrong#actsofrescue
Meet Thor 🐾! Thor was a red zone case, he was very human and dog aggressive with a high prey drive. He was worked through a very high intense rehab program. Initially Thor wanted to do his own thing, his previous owner had him on medication and locked in a kennel because he was too much for her to handle. He would bite at the leash, throw himself on the ground (temper tantrum), try to redirect toward a human or a dog, he was very food aggressive, and didn’t want to obey commands. Overall he was very stubborn and he was a very intense case. It was a two week process of him trying each and every day to get his way and not obey rules. After about two weeks of consistent training and rehab, Thor began to realize he was being helped and started to turn the corner on the road to a safer, more calm and relaxing life. It was a great rehab program for Thor and myself. He is now my right hand man! He works along side me to help rehab other dogs with similar issues and loves to help out. He is a great boy for me and I love to have him with me. His brother (not biological) enjoys having him around and enjoys playing with him daily. That’s a mini story of my guy Thor🐶!! #germanshepherd
